Olivia was well enough to move to the no-kill shelter about six weeks after I first rescued her. She was spayed soon after, and the ominous lumps started shrinking. The vet says she probably had inflamed lymph nodes or something along those lines, because as soon as she stopped constantly going into heat, the lumps vanished!
She stays is in a room with five other cats at the shelter; she wants to rule the roost, and is quick to smack another cat if they get out of line! She is also enamored of the computer (this particular room contains the computer where they set up Petfinder profiles and such) and will "help" anybody who happens to be using it.
Her fur has grown back and she has filled out to probably about nine pounds, the normal weight for a cat her size. She's very pretty, and she'd make anybody a great cat, with two requirements: She gets freaked out by the shelter dogs, so no dogs. And two, she wants a big, covered litter pan, otherwise she'll drape her butt over the edge! She's up for adoption now.
At her last appointment, the vet did not believe it was the same cat! See for yourself.
If you compare that to the picture on the first page, which I took soon after I found her... wow, you wouldn't think she was the same cat either.
Anybody in the market for a cute, bossy little black-and-white kitty?
